If you have been arrested…
Your FREEDOM is potentially at stake. A conviction can have a huge impact on your job, relationships, and your future. You need to act fast.
“That it is better 100 guilty Persons should escape than that one innocent Person should suffer.”
—BENJAMIN FRANKLIN (March 14, 1785)
The United States Constitution provides important limitations on the government that protect the rights of United States citizens. The Texas Constitution grants similar rights ensuring the rights of the accused. A fundamental concept in the United States justice system is that an individual is Innocent Until Proven Guilty. As such, the prosecution must prove you are guilty Beyond a Reasonable Doubt, I strive to prove that you are ‘Not Guilty.’ It is important to remember that Not Guilty does not equal Innocent; Not Guilty equals the state did not prove the case Beyond a Reasonable Doubt.
